Book review of Runaway Twin by Peg Kehret

This book is called Runaway Twin by Peg Kehret
197 pages long
A great book for ages 8-16. A perfect young adult reader.
This book is filled with action, suspense and some drama.

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Sunny longs to be reunited with her twin sister, Starr. With only an old photograph to guide her, Sunny begins the journey that she has dreamed of during her 10 years in various foster homes. Sunny manages to locate her twin, only to be faced with a whole new challenge.

Summary of book by Victorea Bass:
"Dear Readers: Hello, this author has written many books for kids my age before and after she wrote this one. Mrs. Kehret has inspired me to read her books because they make me happy, tearful and fully entertained. I will let you know that the title to this book is perfect for the story line. Runaway Twin is about a girl named Sunny who has been in a series of foster homes while her twin sister, Star, had been adopted. Star and Sunny were separated from each other at age 3. Sunny's Dad left the family and the girls were left in the care of their mom and grandma, until mom and grandma died in an auto accident. Sunny is now living with a new foster mom, Rita. She had many other families that she lived with before this one. I do not want to explain too much so that you can read and find out on your own. But I do want to say that there is a unusual twist ending. It will leave you upset that the book was over but happy at how it did end.

Just think when you read this book that even strange cravings can change your life. Sunny had this craving for Twinkies and her life took it's curve from there.

Star-Sunnys lost twin sister
Rita-Sunnys foster mother
Charlie-Cab Driver
Zooman, Hunker and Randy are unusual characters that she meets along the way
Al and Becky- Stars adopted parents

I really liked this book and I hope that you enjoy!

I would like to tell you that this book is definately worth your time. This book has 20 chapters.

Book can be bought at

Walmart $5 Paperback:

Reusies Sandwich and Snack Bag Giveaway


My family goes through countless numbers of plastic sandwich and snack bags.  My husband uses them when taking his lunch to work, we use them to store leftovers, we also use them to take snack along when we leave the house, and they are also used for odds and ends around the house.  As I am sure you know using so many plastic bags get expensive.  Not to mention it is not the best for the environment.  But...yes there is a but......I found a solution.

I have found the cutest little snack and sandwich bagsReUsies!  The are made from 100% cotton and the liner is nylon.  Sounds like it might leak right?  Well it doesn't!  They are completely leak resistant.  These have been perfect for my husband to take sandwiches to work and Munchkin 2 loves to use them for her snacks....even if we are at home.

They are super easy to clean too!  You can wash them by hand, stick them in the dishwasher or just toss them in with your wash in the washer and dryer!  As a busy mom that is a dream come true!  I love that I do not have to wash them by hand but if my dishwasher is not full yet then I can toss them in with a load of clothes.

The ReUsies sandwich and snack size set is super great because you can even fit a sandwich in the snack size as well.  The  bags have a velcro closure that is adujstable!  I find that fantastic! 

This is a picture of a sandwich in the snack size bag!!  Fits great.

They have a bunch of really fun designs too!  I am sure you all want a set now, huh?  Well you can enter to win a set below!

Review of book Morrigan by Laura Deluca

Shuffled from place to place in the foster system, Morrigan doesn't know the meaning of home. Plus, she is different. She has power over fire, the ability to move objects with her mind, and glimpse into the future. Just when she believes her life can’t get any stranger, she discovers her true identity.
Filtiarn, a knight with a dark past and a surprising secret, has been tasked with guiding the heir of Tír Na NÓg through countless perils to be returned to her family. Once Morrigan has been reunited with her mother and grandmother, their triad can save the forgotten land of magic from being devoured by an ancient evil.
Short Excerpt
“Guardians!” A low snarl emanated from the back of his throat. “What are you doing with Guardians?”
“Stop it! Sit down!”
Morrigan wasn’t sure who she was addressing, the man or the animals. Luckily, they both obeyed her command. She stepped in between them to avoid any further confrontations. The cats took a seat on either side her legs, but their posture hardly relaxed. They still glared warily at the newcomer, even though their hisses died down to an occasional soft growl.
“Dirty, filthy beasts!” Tiarn snarled as he climbed to his feet. “I hate Guardians.”
“They’re just little cats,” Morrigan told him. “What’s the big deal?”
“Just cats! Hah!” He was standing at a careful distance, even though they had started licking their paws nonchalantly. “They are much more than simple cats! Though even those I find distasteful.”
Morrigan narrowed her eyes. “What do you mean?”
“Never mind. It does not matter.” Tiarn dismissed her question with a wave of his hand. “They are not coming with us.
“They most certainly are coming!”
Tiarn growled again. “I beg to differ with you, Your Highness. They would only get in the way. Possibly even get killed.”
Danu raised her head from her grooming to hiss at him again, as though she had taken that last statement as a personal threat. The strange reaction of her faithful sidekicks made Morrigan wonder again just how much Tiarn could be trusted. She also wondered why, when she wasn’t sure she could trust him, she still felt the undeniable urge to wrap her arms around his neck and kiss him.
“If they stay here alone, they’ll definitely get killed or at least sent to the pound,” Morrigan told him. “I can’t let that happen. So, they’re coming. End of story.”
Tiarn’s eyes flashed dangerously, and he looked like he wanted to argue, but thought better of it. “Very well, Princess. Bring your mongrel felines. Just keep in mind that Guardians and lycans do not mix well.”
“Lycans?” Morrigan repeated.
A sick feeling started to settle in her stomach, as the truth of his words sunk in. It all started to make sense—his hairy arms and chest, his reaction to the cats, even his earlier comment about smelling her out. Her dark knight had a much darker side than she had ever seen in her dreams.
“Why yes, Your Majesty. Did you not realize? You are a witch and a sorceress. And I, your faithful traveling companion, am a lycan—a werewolf.”

Here is what one reviewer had to say about this book:
"The elemental battle scene was unprecedented. I really think this was one of the best books I ever read. It was definitely the best of 2012 and I will certainly read it again and again."

You can follow Laura's books:


As this is the 2nd book I have read and reviewed for her, I want you to know that she is very talented. You can tell by her words that she has a passion for writing. Laura seems to take a lot of time and does a lot of research in order for her books to be accurate. When you read her books you really get involved with her characters. You get upset when they are upset or overjoyed when they are overjoyed. You will almost get upset when the story ends. I fully recommend her books.

Laura DeLuca has other books that she written that you might be interested in her current works include Destiny, Destiny Unveiled, Phantom, Morrigan and Player (comes out in '13), Demon (spring '13).

I did a review of Phantom which was a GREAT book! If you would also like to read that review you can read it here:

*just so you know, since some beliefs might stop you from letting your child read books with certain content. This book has witches and werewolves
